All Scientists Are White Men, So Those Black And Latina Ladies Must Be Janitors

The study also found significant bias against those with non-bendy arms
You know what you almost never see in a survey? A 100 percent agreement rate. It just doesn’t happen, unless the sample size is like six ten-year-old boys and the question is “do you find fake fart noises amusing?” And even then you might get one outlier who insists that burps are way funnier. So this is probably significant: Read more on All Scientists Are White Men, So Those Black And Latina Ladies Must Be Janitors…

SC Republican Just Wants Judges To Pass Religious Test, What’s Wrong With That?

He has a gun, let's vote for him!
South Carolina state Rep. Jonathon Hill is just an inquisitive guy who wants to be well-informed about state judicial candidates.¬†That’s the only reason he sent a questionnaire just crawling with completely unconstitutional questions to candidates for judgeships. In South Carolina, judges are elected by state legislators, so Hill, a bright young conservative who is 29 years old, thought he’d look into some important questions to help him decide who belongs on the bench. Here are a few things he wanted to know: Read more on SC Republican Just Wants Judges To Pass Religious Test, What’s Wrong With That?…

Now You Don’t Even Have To Go Broke Or Quit Your Job When You’re Sick, Thanks Obama

It's a great day for commies and mommies!
Here’s some good news: For the first time in years, fewer Americans are going broke due to medical bills, and it’s mostly because of Obamacare. On top of that, President Obama is pushing a proposal to require seven paid days of sick leave for all workers. It’s like we’re living in socialist Sweden already, isn’t it?

70% Of Americans Perfectly Suited To Sit On House Science Committee

As Mr. Dave Barry, one of the forty or so sane people in Florida, said some time ago, the only thing America really excels in anymore is the production of reports on just how stupid Americans are. And so we have another one! The National Science Foundation’s biennial (a word which here means “given every two years to people who do sex with both men and women”) survey of Americans’ basic scientific knowledge finds that only 74% correctly answered the question, “Does the Earth go around the sun, or does the sun go around the Earth?” This does not necessarily mean, as multiple reports put it, that one in four of us think the sun orbits the earth, because a lot of people answered “Huh?” “Benghazi!” or “Am I the fifth caller?” Read more on 70% Of Americans Perfectly Suited To Sit On House Science Committee…

Morning Survey! Who Else, Besides Donald Trump, Is ‘Good People’?

Poor awkward Mitt Romney is coming under fire from respectable Republicans like George Will and Peggy Nooner for his embarrassing habit of trotting after Donald “The Donald” Trump and constantly licking clean the small fine hairs that ring his pooper. But Mitt says he should not be embarrassed, when asked about his association with Old Grossness over there, that he has the help of a lot of “good people”! Read more on Morning Survey!

66% of Americans Cannot Even Guess Approximate Population of USA

What better occasion than the nation’s first caucus/primary thing of 2012 to remember that Americans are mouth-breathing idiots. The new Vanity Fair/CBS survey of U.S. dumbness has been released, and it proves that two-thirds of this nation’s adults have no idea that the population of the USA is approximately 300 million people. You didn’t even need to be correct, just approximate! You could round off the entire population of New York City, or the whole L.A. metropolitan area, and still be “close enough” for the Vanity Fair pollsters. Anyway, 28% of Americans apparently believe there are a billion of us, while 23% believe there are 500 million of us, and 5% live under the happy delusion that there are only 100 million awful Americans on the planet.

Record 81% of Americans Hate America

A shocking new Gallup poll proves that 81% of Americans — an all-time record — are against the American Government, while 82% are against Congress specifically. And 49% of Americans believe the U.S. Government is “an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens.” But to read POLITICO, you’d think we’re just in a polarized campaign environment or whatever, and that everything will “work out in the end.” Haha, it will, but not in a way that POLITICO staffers or other Washington factotums can appreciate. Also, you need to include “Wall Street/The Fed” and “The Pentagon/Military Contractors” in the U.S. Government, as those are both the primary interests and the primary beneficiaries of the U.S. Government. When’s the next straw poll or whatever? Read more on Record 81% of Americans Hate America…

Everyone Agrees Gore Presidency Would’ve Been About the Same As Bush

American voters now agree that an Al Gore presidency would’ve hardly been different from the disastrous eight-year reign of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. See, we really have learned some stuff from Barack Obama! The latest weird Vanity Fair/CBS News poll of random questions proves that 56% of our people say a Gore-Lieberman White House would’ve been “not much different” than the venal plunder and racist war of the Bush Administration’s epic insanity. There’s not a huge difference of opinion across party lines, either: 57% of Republicans and 48% of Democrats sadly agree that there’s no real contrast between the ruling parties other than maybe “being a little bit more obvious about their intentions,” with Republicans winning that particular personality contest.

Liberals Eat Fancy Healthy Food, Conservatives Eat Awful Garbage

According to a scientific survey of some people on the Internet somewhere, liberals eat the fanciest of fancy foods — while conservatives literally eat filthy garbage, mostly from fast-food anusburger chains. See if you can tell which meals were far more likely to be enjoyed by left-leaning humanists: coconut curry lamb and rice, fresh fruit, Pan Asian/French Fusion cuisine and organic vegetables. The answer, of course, is “All of them, Katie.” Because only liberals would even know what these foods are, and conservatives are eating another grease glob off their belly in the parking lot behind the Rite-Aid.

Shocking New Poll Shows D.C. Elites Not As Bummed Out As Poor Old Teabaggers

Free Washington Metro Station paper The Politico exists for one reason: To sell advertising to D.C. lobbying firms and interest groups so that D.C. government professionals will see the ads while flipping through the tabloid on the way to work. “Oh,” the cubicle-bound factotum with the graduate degree in public policy will mumble to him/herself between fantasies of having sex with Ke$ha and/or the cast of Twilight, “Saudi Arabia is leading the way in something or other.” But the Politico also pretends that this same “D.C. Elite” is somehow separate/different from “the exact demographic of The Politico.” That’s why this new poll is such big news: Educated, employed white-collar Washington seems to have a rosier view of things than uneducated, unemployed blue-collar America At Large. Shouldn’t Sarah Palin just become president, because of this? Read more on Shocking New Poll Shows D.C. Elites Not As Bummed Out As Poor Old Teabaggers…

Happy 50th Day of the BP Oil Spill, Everybody!

Today’s Dirty Dozen American Primary Election is also the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill’s 50th Day. Did you get BP a present? It’s a testament to the constant spastic churn of the news cycle that this oil disaster already feels really old, like something from last summer or maybe even 2005. But the spill began less than two months ago, and it will likely be with us for many months (or years) to come. We don’t feel like posting more terrible pictures of crude-covered seabirds in the last throes of death — not even a blingee could help in that department — but we all have to do something to mark the 50th day of America’s worst offshore oil disaster (so far). Let’s take a poll and figure out what’s best, for America. Read more on Happy 50th Day of the BP Oil Spill, Everybody!…

Obama *Almost* More Popular Than Nazi Pope & Multi-Racial Golfing Star Combined

Well, Barack Obama has failed again. The so-called president isn’t quite as popular as Nazi Pope Joseph Ratzinger and Partially-African-American Nike model Tiger Woods combined, according to an idiotic new study which also revealed that 5% of Americans want to meet and have their topless picture taken with teevee’s Hannah Montana.
